The apartment is very comfortable and extremely well provided with extras like basic cooking items,local maps and umbrellas! The 2 bedrooms downstairs are small but with good quality beds and linen. The living room upstairs has comfy sofa and chairs, good wifi connection and dining table overlooking the shared garden. The flat is an easy 10 minute walk to the East Putney tube station and also Putney overground train. The tube is on the District line and very convenient to Kensington museums as well as Hampton Court, Wimbledon and Kew Gardens. There are nice walks along the Thames path to Hammersmith. Putney has lots of places to eat- Carluccios at Putney Wharf and Vera Italia near Carlton drive were both good. Booking the flat was easy and efficient and both the owner and local contact were very helpful. A very nice base for our week in London!
Putney is a great location in London. Transport available by overground rail, underground rail, bus and river ferry to all parts of London. Good shopping in Wimbledon and Kingston, both a short bus ride away. It's nice to have an independent department store, Ely's in Wimbledon. There are plenty of grocery shops nearby - Little Waitrose on Upper Richmond Road is very handy. There are also some nice walks along the Thames and in Putney Common or Wimbledon Common.
The flat is secure and in a quiet location with beautiful well kept gardens to overlook and sit in. It is only a short walk to the overground and underground rail and the High Street. The bedrooms and bathroom are small but functional and there is a good power shower in the bathroom.
A very enjoyable stay.
We booked for 5 nights in July. Location was ideal with the bonus of a small parking spot. The flat's living quarters were spacious, complete with wildlife viewing in the huge community back garden. The kitchen was well equipped, except we would have opted for a dishwasher rather than a clothes washer. The only thing that let the rental down, was the lack of cleanliness. The whole apartment was in need of a deep clean, especially with the lack of ventilation on the ground floor (bathroom & bedrooms).
The booking process with the owner was very good and efficient, and the reception contact worked well.
There were four of us staying in the apartment. The bedrooms are not large, but big enough, and have some closet space. Everything was clean. The kitchen was well equipped, even some little extras like spices, some paper towels, plenty of cutlery, dishes, and pans to cook with if you wanted. One highlight is the lovely view from the dining table of the garden, we sat there watching the squirrels, parrots, and spotted a fox one night. The East Putney tube station is a five to ten minute walk and the Putney rail is even more convenient. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. It was very convenient to have a place to park the car so close to central London. We would stay here again.
My family of four enjoyed nine days at this Putney apartment in April 2016 while visiting relatives.
The apartment was fully self contained and very comfortable with plenty of open space so we were not on top of each other like is often the case with London accommodation.
We had exceptional weather and the large rear windows provided a great setting to the enormous garden that was flowering in the spring weather.
A short walk to both Tube and rail lines it was easy to get about London.
We'll be back next UK trip.
Our parents stayed in Joanna's apartment for 2 weeks during their last visit and they absolutely enjoyed it! The highlight of the apartment is the dining area with a beautiful view overlooking the garden. My dad enjoyed having his breakfast while looking at the squirrels in the garden. Joanna is very warm and welcoming, always helpful. The apartment is clean and great location, easy access to East Putney station but also very quiet for a good night sleep. Strongly recommended!
This is a wonderful apartment right in the heart of Putney. It has great transport links being a 5 minute walk from main line Putney rail station into Waterloo and 5 minutes in the other direction from East Putney underground station (on the District line); there are local buses at the end of the street and the river bus RB 6 to Embankment and Blackfriars is only a 10 minute stroll away. You certainly don't need a car - but if you have one, there is a parking space available. Nearby there is a wide choice of supermarkets, lovely restaurants and several parks. The apartment itself is fully equipped and clean and the local representative was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends. We had a fabulous mini break and are already looking forward to a return visit.
